    Oh shit I've literally never seen that before. Yeah Nintendo kinda messed up with the names of that generation. Naming your new console (Wii U) in the same manner you named all your Wii accessories and making the 3ds and 2ds the same system was a bad idea

    Yeah, marketing and naming were the main reason the Wii U flopped, along with minimal 3rd party support and a lot of people thought Nintendo was dead in the water in the console department after that. The Wii U is a good console and has great games but the formerly mentioned things dug it's grave.in late 2015/early 2016.

    As someone who used to sell Wii U's to unknowing grandmothers and family members when it first came out (the economy sucked, don't judge!), I can personally vouch for how a complete lack of marketing, poor naming, and a generally awful communication of the system to the public ruined that system before it ever got off the ground. The looks I would get when I dropped the term "asymmetric gameplay" on people were amazing.

    Fortunately the Switch has basically succeeded in every place the Wii U failed and the success shows.

    Yeah, the Switch is definitely a godsend for Nintendo. I’ve said this a few different places, but to think that in mid-late 2016 Nintendo’s console future was uncertain and that a lot of critics said that they should drop out of that business entirely, and that they are now at the top of the heap getting insane 3rd Party support with amazing marketing and nearly EVERY release being unbelievably hyped in one way or another, it’s just unreal. If Nintendo keeps up this trend they will be on top for years to come.

    I also really like how they’re avoiding isolating people who want to play Wii U games by rereleasing them on Switch, and some with added content to boot. (I can’t fucking wait for Captain Toad on Switch)

    So tried Sea of Thieves last night using a 14 day trial for Xbox Gamepass....

    Turns out the Sea has no thieves when the servers are completely broken.

    You can sail to the oceans of hell only to sink to Davy Jones locker.

    You can try to become the first pirate in space.

    Please don't become "Dead" Man's Sky.

    Just finished Mega Man 2 today after an almost two and a half year gap of not playing and it was pretty good. It had a few BS moments and I abused the Virtual Console restore points to hell and back but other than that it's really solid. Can't wait until the Mega Man Legacy Collection 1+2 combo comes out on Switch in May.

    It's happening! One of the franchises I played like crazy back in my childhood (along with Mario, Pokemon, and Crash Bandicoot) is finally coming back via remake! The Spyro: Reignited Trilogy (featuring remakes of Spyro the Dragon, Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage!, and Spyro 3: Year of the Dragon) arrives this September!

    Can’t wait for it! Infact, i went ahead & pre-ordered it on my Xbox One!
    (I would of pre-ordered on PS4, but for whatever reason, Sony won’t take the credit card, It’s on Sony’s side because the credit card works just fine for my Xbox Consoles, my Nintendo Consoles & Steam.)

    The hype levels for this game are off the charts! So much so that I ended up dropping the $120 on the special Collector's Edition for God of War. Can't wait for it to arrive on Friday! For those interested, here is what is in the Collector's Edition (see below):

    I think Bethesda won E3 there. Rage 2 actually doesn't look half bad, DOOM Eternal coming, the rumored single player RPG Starfield is indeed real (what I am really looking forward to), and Elder Scrolls VI is also in development too.

    Microsoft's conference was not too bad, EA's was really awful though. I have no doubt Sony's will be good this afternoon. If they show me the MedEvil remake I'll be pretty happy.

    Loved the Ghost of Tsushima and Spider Man trailers. Still have no idea what Death Stranding is - a delivery simulator with ghosts?
